I FELT TROUBLED THAT I COULDN’T BE THERE FOR MY NANA LIKE SHE DESERVED
My life’s calling came as a result of being present during my 106 year old loving Grandmother’s journey. Although I loved my Nana dearly, I often felt troubled that I couldn’t be there for her like I wanted. Details of my life got in the way; being a wife and a mother, and having a successful career. She was pretty healthy, but she lacked companionship. I knew there were things that could improve the quality of her life such as long talks, sharing stories, cooked meals, and transportation to the doctors, stores, church, etc. I did my best, but there simply wasn’t enough time in my day to show up like I felt she deserved. Her passing made my life’s purpose clear; service to elders and their loved ones.
I MINIMIZE THE STRESS AND CONCERNS ADULT CHILDREN HAVE ABOUT THEIR PARENTS
I made it my life’s mission to promote the aging years as a sacred, beautiful, honorable stage of life. I became a hospice volunteer and an eldercare specialist, an aging companion, and an end-of-life doula, a person who assists in the dying process, much like a birth doula does with the birthing process. Working with elderly clients has been life affirming so much that I left a career of 20+ years to do it full time.
I serve as a non-medical, elderly professional who specializes in physical, emotional and spiritual care. I meet my clients on their terms, see them as whole, and build relationships with them and their loved ones. My self-care regimen, personal growth and intuition allow me to mindfully hold space and provide comfort for elderly people and their family in a non-judgmental, loving manner. My motto “heart to heart” is evident in the services that I provide.
Holding this space decreases the stress and fears family members face, when caring for their loved ones. I am there whether they are in need of respite relief, work long hours or live long distance. I can help. Through extensive training, I provide support, education, and suggestions for comfort. I have a toolkit of available resources to ease the anxious person and their family members including virtual “elder cams,” essential oils, crystals, healing, mindfulness practices, etc. I am often referred to as “angels”, “Godsends”, “extraordinary”, “beyond belief” and words of the like.
